Book of Mormon: The Prophecy regarding the Three Disciples Fulfilled–‘Sorrow for the Sins of the World’

(c)2010

Regarding the three Nephite disciples, in 3 Nephi it says:
3 Nephi 28:9, 38
9 And again, ye shall not have pain while ye shall dwell in the flesh, *neither sorrow save it be for the sins of the world*; and all this will I do because of the thing which ye have desired of me, for ye have desired that ye might bring the souls of men unto me, while the world shall stand.
38 Therefore, that they might not taste of death there was a change wrought upon their bodies, that they might *not suffer pain nor sorrow save it were for the sins of the world*.

Jesus’ words are fulfilled in 4 Nephi:
4 Nephi 1:44 And from this time the disciples began to *sorrow for the sins of the world*.

(P.S. Just a reminder: if Joseph Smith were to have made up the Book of Mormon, that is one more thing he would have had to remember (in three places).)
